The way I make my pants... ;3
« on: March 03, 2010, 03:48:38 am »
Alright, I have made my pants this way since i started Dagorhir, 4 years ago. Odd as it sounds, i go to a thrift store and buy a dress. I perfer a dress with that velvety feel, and quite a bit of fabric in the ... uh, dress part...?  <.< to help explain this i have drawn a diagram for it. Its all done by eye, so at most, you have a new, cool lookin pair of pants in about 20 minutes, max.

comments are welcome!

Here goes:






here you need another piece of cloth, or leather or whatever and whichever color you want. a cat is fine too.






Finished product: :D


First pair i ever made... about 3 years ago. still wear them.







you look funny with your head tilted like that. >:3

As a seamstress, I am offended.




hahaha, no I'm just kidding. It's pretty resourceful, actually. I like the idea a crap ton better than gluing, safety-pining, stapling, or duct-taping. Yes...these are things people do for costumes around Halloween. And yes, sadly I've seen this among Dagorhirrim.

So I thank you for being...logical.

Cool! Although... why does it somehow remind me of mariachi pants?

When you said you started with a dress, I'm not gonna lie, I was like "uhhhhhhmmm...."

HOWEVER, considering most people don't have sewing exp, I gotta say that's not a bad idea.

thanks Kye, i have little sewing experience and not enough to sew clothes. So this might help me a great deal. I just have to give it a try.

Side Note: I love the looks i get when i go to Goodwill for some womens stuff for garb and department stores to buy panty hose for my weapon covers. I feel like Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs.

I'll save ten bucks for you next time I see you. Sorry about asking you to make those and then being a bum and unable to pay you for them. Will make it up to you!

well, Otuthro, you don't have to put it on!( not that it should offend you in any way, cause i mean, we dress up in mideval clothing, and walk into walmart... you would probably get less odd looks by wearing a dress... ) Have you ever held a pair of pants to your waist to see if they go around to the middle of each side? same thing here, if its stretchable material, you can assume, within reason, that it will fit. it doesn't have to be tight, it can hang off of your waist, thats what the belt loops are for, to hold the pants up. :D


@ Bob: yes that is how you buy your pants cheaply, however, this thread is how you make pants, cheaply. lrn2read, ya hooker! ;)

@Karina, Izad, Grey, Vetari, Kossak, : Thanks! originally it was jsut an impromtu garb making idea form my first event. made my garb outta the sheets i took for my bedding that weekend. got compliments on how original it was looking, so i never stopped to consider sewing. besides, the material, and the breeze flowing freely through... well, i'll just say its a gratifying experience. :D

I recommend some sort of shorts or a nice piece of cloth to cover the crotch, if you do alot of crouching. boxers tend to .... ride up, and display your goods, if your not careful. (makes for some wonderful kill opportunitys though, as well as some priceless shocked expressions!)
